* RightBehindMe: Galavant gets this at the end of the song "He Was There" when he complains about his dad. He cuts off the song to say, "He's right behind me, isn't he?"

* AutomatonHorses: Exaggerated in the second season; the gang's horse stops moving forwards, and it plays out exactly like a motorcycle nobody knows how to service broke down. The horse is just standing there and looks perfectly fine, but the characters are forced to continue on foot after trying to give it a kick fails to work.

The gang is also starving to the point of cannibalism, but nobody even thinks of the fact that the now-useless horse is made of meat.

* LyricalDissonance:
** Most of the songs, but especially "She'll Be Mine," a cheery tune about maiming, beheading, and genocidal war.

* LyricalDissonance:
** Most
LyricalDissonance: The show is largely ''made'' of this trope, including multiple cheery tunes about various characters plotting various murders and assassinations, dramatic tunes with humorous or otherwise ill-fitting lyrics, a cheerful love song highlighting the songs, but especially prevalence of death and disease among peasants in the era, a love-song tune entitled "Maybe You're Not The Worst Thing Ever" and more. Some example:

''Galavant'' is a musical-comedy series which first aired on Creator/{{ABC}} during the 2014/2015 midseason winter break. (Bridging the gap between season halves of ''Series/OnceUponATime''.) The series follows the exploits of the [[FamedInStory famous]] knight Galavant (Creator/JoshuaSasse), whose true love Madalena was kidnapped by the evil King Richard, and then, when Galavant attempted to rescue her, Madalena chose to marry Richard for the fame and fortune instead of returning to Galavant. About a year later, a despondent Galavant is approached by Isabella, the princess of Valencia. Her kingdom has come under attack by Richard, and she wants Galavant to liberate it. There's just one problem; Galavant has spent the last year or so doing nothing but [[DrowningMySorrows drinking]] and becoming a sour and depressed shut-in, so he's not really up for playing the hero. So it falls to Isabella and Galavant's squire Sidney to try and inspire him to take up the quest to save Valencia and once again become the hero he was meant to be. Along the way are laughs, epic battles, and songs. ''Lots and lots'' of songs.

Surprisingly - despite mediocre ratings and the show's own narrator thinking it unlikely - the show was picked up for a second season, which began airing January 3, 2016. The second season resolved many of the plot threads that had been LeftHanging at the end of the first, as well as a number of new conflicts that arose during the course of the season. That said it still ended with something of a SequelHook, as well as some more subtle hints at potential plot/character arcs that would be present in a third season.

and a key ingredient for a potion to [[spoiler:revive the dead]] is a grey hair from the beard of a middle-aged man who's never known a woman.

** In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment from the second episode of the first season (which crosses over with RewatchBonus), a painting can be seen in the background of Gareth's room during the scene where he tries to teach Richard to be more "manly." A closer inspection of the painting reveals that it's one of the paintings Gareth tries to hang up in the throne room during the second season.
